Oxford SU Leadership Election

Oxford SU is run by students for students so every year we ask students to run for and vote for their Sabbatical Officer Team. Sabbatical Officers either take a year out of their studies, or start the year after they've finished studying, for a paid full time job working for the interests of 25,000 Oxford students.

It is a job like no other. Our Sabbatical Officers get a unique view across the whole Collegiate University, work with the University leadership, participate in Senior University Committees, support student activities, run their own projects, and fight for the rights of Oxford students.

You'll find all the information you need on this page including timelines, job descriptions, and helpful resources. If you have further questions about the Leadership Elections drop us an email at elections@oxfordsu.ox.ac.uk and our team will get in touch.
